    Nicely Preserved $10 1933 Silver Serial 555

    Fr. 1700 $10 1933 Silver Certificate. PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    A number known as the "King of the Silvers" with this example sporting fancy serial number 00000555. Other merits of this nicely preserved $10 are punch through embossing and natural paper wave. There is also a thin bottom margin, but it is well outside of the frame line. Today, we can thank George Blake for convincing Colonel E.H.R. Green to collect low and fancy serial number $10 1933 Silvers. Blake would acquire the notes through his contacts in the Treasury Department and then pass them on to Green at a premium. The notes were later dispersed into the collecting community after Green's death in 1936. The 1933 $10s are also numismatically important as their obligation clause, "This certificate is issued pursuant...," is not found on any other note and it is also the only design with the "Payable in silver coin to bearer on demand" clause. This issue was released only through the Treasury Cash Room in Washington, DC during the the first eight months of 1934. The Treasury Department then began an aggressive campaign to redeem the 1933 Tens as the 1934 Silvers were now available in quantity and they had the current clause of, "In silver payable to the bearer on demand." The last two Fr. 1700's at this third party grade to appear at auction graded PMG 63 EPQ and they realized $24,675 and $28,200 in 2017.
